Retreats in August & September

Don’t miss these opportunities to be in community with your First Church family!

Summer Family Retreat, Sat.– Sun., Aug. 20–21: A chance for people currently raising children of any age to get together to nurture friendship, let children play together, sing, pray, be in nature, share faith/doubts/strengths/challenges as we emerge. Options to both stay overnight (meals provided!) or just come for the day, to St. Dorothy’s Rest Retreat Center near Occidental in the Russian River Valley. Register here

Fall All-Church Retreat, Fri. – Sun., Sept. 16–18: We’ve only missed one year (2020) out of about the last 50 to gather together as a *whole* community, babies to eldest elders, to play, hike, do art, learn, sing, dance, eat and worship together! With the sale of Camp Caz, we went camping above Lake Chabot last fall. This year we are upgrading to a retreat center, where we will sleep in private and semi-private accommodations and have all meals provided. There will be options to stay one night, two nights, or just come for the day to St. Dorothy’s Rest Retreat Center. Learn more and register after worship on Sundays, Aug. 21, 28 & Sept. 4 or register online here. Join us for our second Planning Meeting on ZoomWed., Aug. 24 at 7 pm. We’d love to hear your ideas about how to create a retreat that’s engaging, connecting, and FUN for all.
